Publications of IACR
IACR maintains multiple forms of publications:
Journal of Cryptology
This is the premier academic journal in the field of cryptology.
According to ISI it is also one of the top journals in the whole of
Theoretical Computer Science.
The journal is edited by an independent Editorial Board appointed
by the Editor in Chief.
The Editor in Chief is appointed by the IACR Board and then
sits on the Board as one of the board members.
Proceedings from IACR conferences and workshops.
Proceedings of IACR conferences and workshops are published by
Springer in their LNCS series. Publication in an IACR proceedings
is very prestigious and equivalent to a journal publication in
other disciplines. From 2000 our proceedings can also be found
in the IACR Archive (see below), after a two year delay.
IACR ePrint Archive
To enable timely dissemination of research results the
IACR has established an electronic pre-print repository
called the ePrint archive. Papers are often published
in ePrint many months before they appear in an official
publication, also the long version of papers (including detailed
proofs not to be found in the printed version) are placed
The IACR Newsletter is published two or three times a year and
only available electronically. It is sent to IACR members by
email (as HTML and ASCII text) and published on the web.
Since 2000 the copyright of all IACR conferences and workshops
is held by IACR. This means that we can make the proceedings
freely available on the web via our IACR Archive. All
proceedings should be available after a two year publication
window provided by us to Springer.
